AUGUST

 Tuesday August 25, 2015 3:30–4:30PM Webinar: Digital Tools and Formative Assessment: Part 1 of 3


Student: I don’t get this
Teacher: What part don’t you understand
Student: I don’t know, all of it I guess.
If this conversation sounds familiar, then you are in the right place.
Formative assessment, according to Margaret Heritage should move students’ learning forward and is only effective when teachers are clear and intentional about students’ learning goals. Furthermore, according to Margaret Heritage, “there is no single way to collect formative evidence because formative assessment is not a specific kind of test”. The purpose of this three part Webinar series is to explore, investigate and provide examples of where technology integration through digital tools can enhance the practice of formative assessment in the classroom. Participants in this three part Webinar series will explore a variety of digital tools that are free, easy to use and can be seamlessly integrated into formative assessment practices.
Tuesday August 25, 2015 3:30–4:30PM Webinar Grades 3-5 Writing Standards Implementation Webinar Series-A Community of Engaged Writers


Creating a Community of Engaged Writers This is the fourth of four webinars focusing on grades 3-5 writing instruction and standards implementation. The research from Teaching Elementary School Students to be Effective Writers: A Practice Guide by Steve Graham and Alicia Bollinger (2012) will be used to help participants explore the essential elements of writing development and the components of solid writing instruction in intermediate grade classrooms, specifically focusing on engaging writers. Audience: Elementary classroom teachers, coaches, specialists-please consider joining in with a partner to facilitate discussion. Please download and be familiar with the handouts provided.

Webinar: Developing Authentic Science Fair Research and Projects – grades 5-8


Participation in a science fair can be a very rewarding experience. It is the culmination of conducting research or testing designs and provides valuable feedback to students as they continue on in their STEM pursuits. Integrating the Science & Engineering Practices, found in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, can help engage students in scientific investigations while increasing conceptual understanding. In this 1-hour webinar we’ll look at interdisciplinary strategies to help build instruction that moves students beyond memorization, recall, and a basic level of knowledge to a much higher cognitive demand of problem solvers and critical thinkers where science fair projects are an authentic outcome that enhances student learning.

Webinar: Reading for the Rhetorical Situation


Reading for the rhetorical situation requires students to go much deeper than just identifying the main ideas. Students need to focus simultaneously on the author’s purpose, the message/text, the context for writing, and the audience it is addressing. It is not just what the text says, but how the text says it. This webinar will review the elements of the rhetorical situation and provide some strategies for helping students increase their rhetorical reading comprehension.

Rhetorical Grammar For Authentic Writing (Overview)


This webinar will focus on how we as educators can present grammar as a strategic, conscious choice writers make when creating a text for an authentic task, purpose, or audience. We will discuss ways to make grammar study a part of the writing process, and not just “rules” that are applied after the text is written, and encourage students to see how the grammatical choices we make represent relationships between writers and readers.

Webinar: Developing Authentic Science Fair Research and Projects – Grades 5-8


Participation in a science fair can be a very rewarding experience. It is the culmination of conducting research or testing designs and provides valuable feedback to students as they continue on in their STEM pursuits. Integrating the Science & Engineering Practices, found in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, can help engage students in scientific investigations while increasing conceptual understanding. In this 1-hour webinar we’ll look at interdisciplinary strategies to help build instruction that moves students beyond memorization, recall, and a basic level of knowledge to a much higher cognitive demand of problem solvers and critical thinkers where science fair projects are an authentic outcome that enhances student learning.

Webinar: “E”ngineering in the STEM Classroom


The “E” in STEM can sometimes be scary for teachers as they begin to embrace STEM teaching and learning, but fear not! Engineering is all around us and in practically everything we do and the best part… students are naturally born engineers! The National Research Council’s Framework for K-12 Science Education states, “Any science education that focuses predominately on the detailed products of scientific labor – the facts of science – without developing an understanding of how those facts were established or that ignores the many important applications of science in the world misrepresents science and marginalizes the importance of engineering.” In this webinar we’ll look at how students should learn how science is used through the engineering design process, and how they come to appreciate the distinctions and relationships between engineering, technology and applications of science.

 Webinar: Reading & Writing in the STEM Classroom


Students gain knowledge and understanding of the STEM disciplinary content through reading and writing. In STEM teaching and learning students need to be engaging with the texts and writing about they are reading. Teachers need to make intentional decisions about the kinds of texts and writing tasks they’re asking students to engage with in an interdisciplinary classroom environment. In this webinar we’ll investigate different disciplinary approaches to reading and writing like a scientist, technologist, engineer, or mathematician.
